Two bike-borne men who were allegedly drunk thrashed a policeman after they were stopped by him in Sambhal, Uttar Pradesh. The incident which took place yesterday was captured on camera. Pankaj Pandey, ASP Sambhal, said, “one person has been arrested of the two men who attacked a police constable,” as per ANI. In the 19-second-video, a man can be seen hitting the policeman with a lathi. However, the policeman managed to snatch away the stick from the man following which he ran away. Another man, in the video, was trying to put a bike on the stand. However, it was not clear whether the man was helping the policeman or he was the other accused.
Earlier on January 1, a Delhi Police constable was injured after being attacked by a 28-year-old man following an argument. Uma Shankar Gupta, the accused, had parked his car in the middle of the road, leading to a traffic jam. Police said Gupta was drunk and told the policeman that he should talk to him politely as he was the son of a retired police officer. He also threatened to get the policeman suspended if he forced him to remove his vehicle. The man punched the policeman in the face and before the constable could react, he started thrashing him black and blue, as per Times of India.
